Artist Statement

I am interested in the authentic, it is difficult to be in front of the camera, to be seen as you truly are. I am interested in showing the whole person : what they want to present and what they want to hide. Before taking a picture there are choices I make in creating each portrait: which place tells the story ? where is the light ? what should she wear ? But most important element is building a sense of trust with the sitter. Trust is necessary to capture that true and authentic moment.
